There are two stats that boost loot chances, [[item]] quality (previously known as magic find) and item quantity.
+
When looking for good items, you should build item quality and item quantity.
As their name suggests one boosts the chance of finding items while the other one improves the quality.
+
However, item quantity is capped at 200 and item quality is only effective until 286, so don't over-build unless the caps are changed.
  
While looking for high-quality items, it is suggested to max out item quality and item quantity.

Some bosses also have a guaranteed chance of dropping certain quality item.
 +
For example, [[Radulos]] always drops at least 5 [[Quality|magic]] items.

Killing [[M'ogresh]] guarantees two magic items.

Rare mobs are also guaranteed to drop 1 magic item.
